This year, Earth Day will be celebrated on Friday, April 22. Since the first Earth Day in 1970, our planet has faced many environmental challenges, but has also made great strides in protecting and preserving our natural resources.
We can continue to do our part by pledging to make our environment a safer and healthier place to live, work and play.
At home, save energy by turning off lights, appliances and electronics when not in use. Pay bills online if possible.
In your backyard, compost yard waste and fruit and vegetable scraps in a compost pile.
In the community, organize or participate in trash clean-up events.
At your job site, take advantage of technology. E-mail documents and messages whenever possible. Post items such as newsletters, upcoming events and flyers on the Internet.
